Ingredients:

1 lb. ground beef

1 medium tomato, chopped
1 cup sharp shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup of sour cream

2 cups of crushed corn chips

1/2 cup chopped green onions

1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
1 pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste (optional)
1 pinch red pepper flakes, or to taste (optional)

Directions:

In a small skillet, cook ground beef and onions until done. Drain the grease and then add flour and mix well. Stir in well drained salsa or Rotel. Add taco seasoning and stir until evenly coated. Pour the ingredients in a 9 x 12 baking dish. Once  the mix cools down, top with crushed corn chips, shredded cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, green onions and sour cream and serve immediately.

Note: You can also do the same process in Ramikins for individual servings! Great for parties too!
